Theodore (Teedie) Roosevelt, Jr.
He loved stories of high adventure and later wrote about his own adventures in the West. He collected animal specimens, particularly birds, which he prepared himself. As an adult, he would travel west several times. He bought over a thousand head of cattle in the Bad Lands and established a ranch, called Elkhorn. His love of the west echoed his earlier love of the outdoors, exploring, and adventure.
He was a good husband and father, who also gave generously to charitable organizations. Although the family was well off, he cared little for public attention or acclaim. He was a faithful member of the Madison Square Presbyterian Church and belonged to the Union League Club and the Century Association. He was athletic and liked fine clothing. He had china-blue eyes, chestnut hair and beard, and a square jaw.
